It also establishes a benchmark for the delivery of high-speed Internet services across fiber-optic networks.

Within the same service will be included Norton Business Suite software that protects up to 25 PCs from viruses and spyware. The package includes other Web site hosting, design features and options.

In a release Jay Dirkmaat, Vice President Business Services for Comcast’s Mile High Region said, “We are excited about helping local companies increase their online productivity and efficiency, and take their businesses to the next level with our 100 Mbps service.”

The new service will provide download speeds of up to 100 Mbps enabling customers to operate their businesses more efficiently and productively.
